Fantasia Barrino: The Aftermath

Singer Fantasia Barrino is making a comeback, not too long after her suicide attempt earlier this month. Barrino, who has faced great scrutiny with her relationship with the married Antwaun Cook, took the stage this weekend in Las Vegas.

Barrino performed on Friday at the Palms Casino and Resort–to a crowd that reportedly included fellow celeb moms Demi Moore and Soleil Moon Frye–covering songs like Prince’s ‘Purple Rain,’ and addressing what everyone really wanted to hear about. “They thought I was finished, they thought I was done,” she said to the audience. “I would never ever stop, I don’t care what no one says.”

The American Idol winner took the opportunity to assure fans–and perhaps the doubters out there–that she is back and ready to shine again. “I was in the hospital, but now I bounce back…Don’t ever let your haters stop you,” she said.
